Alan Rogers Review

This site, which was created around 1997 in a disused quarry, has matured into a very pleasant, peaceful little site, partially terraced, and in a sheltered location. The access roads and the physical proportions of the site make it suitable only for tents, trailer tents and campervans. This site is popular with couples, nature lovers, walkers and those with young families, but has nothing to offer teenagers. There is a children’s play area in Bluebell Wood (unsupervised) at the top of the site with a rope swing and a ‘Timber Trak’. Of the 27 pitches for touring (15 with 10/16A electricity), three are hardstanding for motorhomes up to 23 feet in length, the remainder are on grass. Five hardstandings are used for seasonal units.

Visit King Arthur’s Caves and Seven Sisters Rocks or walk to Symonds Yat Rock and cross the River Wye on the suspension bridge. In nearby Symonds Yat West you will find The Amazing Hedge puzzle, and The Splendour of the Orient with gardens, waterfalls, tearooms and a gift shop.


A neat central building provides the usual facilities including refurbished hot showers. No designated area for disabled visitors, but toilet facilities have wide access. Freezer for ice packs. Small shop selling basic supplies. Service washing and drying facilities available. Torches are advisable. Free WiFi over site.

From A40 between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, turn for Symonds Yat West, and follow signs for Doward Park and Biblins. Turn into narrow lane for 1 mile and site is on right, on sharp left hand bend. Sat nav: use GPS, not postcode.
